How do I preserve the orignial document creation date in a pdf?

When I create a pdf from a word document, the pdf changes the document creation in 'Properties" to the date I converted it to PDF. Is my original document creation date preserved in metadata that I can't see?

The creation date is the creation date of the specific file, the PDF file, was created on and is applied by the Operating System. The creation date for the source file is not maintained in the PDF.

If is possible for one to add custom metadata fields where one could add the source file name, location, and date.
